The top 10 performances of Bale's award-winning season
Tottenham 2-1 Liverpool
Spurs flew out of the traps in this midweek game against Brendan Rodgers' side, with Bale bursting down the left to provide a perfect cross for Aaron Lennon to tap home after six minutes.
He then converted a free kick - via a substantial deflection - after 16 minutes as Spurs threatened to run riot. But Liverpool gradually got back into the game, and it was Bale, or rather his face, that gave the visitors a lifeline when Lennon cannoned his goal-line clearance in off his team-mate.
